Bernie Lofchick, as any Zig Ziglar fan knows, was friends with Zig for a LONG time. His son David was featured in one of Zig's books and audio recordings because he was born with Cerebral Palsy.
Bernie and his wife and family worked bravely and diligently with David and he has overcome all odds and today is a successful person and business person.
I read about Bernie recently when reading about the newly formed Ziglar Inspiration Groups (ZIGs) being formed by the Zig Ziglar Foundation.
Read the announcement below from Jim Norman about the groups.
As the Ziglar Foundation moves forward with the creation of Ziglar Inspiration Groups (ZIG’s) across America and around the world I’m hearing from people who want to know why they should invest the time and effort in either forming or joining a new “ZIG”. My answer is simple! A ZIG has the potential to change your life for the better. It will happen as a result of discovering not only a new purpose for your life, but opening doors that will enable you live out that purpose in an exciting way. There is nothing more gratifying than being able to transmit encouragement to others and watching them become different people.
Zig Ziglar himself was a great encourager. As a matter of fact he said that “encouragement is the engine of hope” and he believed there was no greater gift one person could give another. Zig dedicated his life to that idea and the evidence of his effort is represented by the hundreds of thousands of personal stories people share about the impact Zig had on their life. ZIG groups have been formed based on that simple idea and we believe that in years to come this idea will grow into an major movement of optimism and hope around the world. Wouldn’t you like to be a part of that journey?
Be sure to read about Bernie Lofchick and his son David in Zig's books and audio recordings.
